All you need to know about AFC Cup 2022: How to Watch Live and Prize Money

After Mumbai City FC's success in the AFC Champions League last month, it's now time to sift focus onto the AFC Cup, set to centre-stage from the 18th of May, with India's Gokulam Kerala and ATK Mohun Bagan set to feature in Group D.

Asian Football Confederation's 2nd tier continental competition, the AFC Cup is set to get underway from the 18th of May, with South Asian Zone's Group D matches to be played in Kolkata.

The line-up of this year's AFC Cup South Zone (Group D) is no different from last year's line-up, with only Gokulam Kerala being the exception. They are joined by last year's participants Basundhara Kings and Maziya Sports and Recreation.

Last year in the AFC Cup 2021, ATK Mohun Bagan won the group, but suffered a humiliating defeat against the eventual runners-up Nasaf FC. They are back in the competition and this time, now under new boss Juan Ferrando, would like to do better than that.

As for Gokulam Kerala FC, having won the I-League 2021-2022 just recently, are high on morale as they make their continental debut with the men's team. Gokulam has been by far the best team in the I-League ever since they joined the competition, and now have won the competition back-to-back.

Bangladesh's champions Basundhara Kings also have the aspiration to become Asia's one of the best and AFC Cup is a stepping stone for them. They finished 2nd last year, behind ATK Mohun Bagan, but would look to do one better.

As for Maldives' champions Maziya, after finishing bottom of the group last year at their home turf, losing all three of their matches, would want to improve in that and put up strong fight against the better teams.
